In the current heat wave, it’s clear how vital water is for our staff to stay hydrated and healthy throughout the working day. It’s also a reminder that not everyone has access to clean drinking water.
In providing our offices with water, we chose to partner with AquAid, as they have given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves; with each purchase we make, an automatic donation is made to The Africa Trust. These funds are then used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ – a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system – which provide a source of clean and fresh drinking water.
One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf, where it will provide a local village with a much-needed water source. Our organisation’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to sharing an update and photo of the finished well in the near future.
